William S. Miller

Virginia Beach - William Stroud ("Bill") Miller, 69, died peacefully on February 6, 2014, in Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital after a long, debilitating illness. The second child of Samuel D. Miller, Jr., and Jane (Stroud) Miller, Bill graduated from A. D. Eisenhower High School in Norristown PA. He received a BA degree in economics from Albion College, Albion MI, and an MA degree in higher education administration from Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI. At Albion he was elected to Omicron Delta Kappa, the national college leadership fraternity.

Bill spent his entire working career in the fields of college admissions and college student financial aid, an employment area in which he became interested while a student at Albion. He served as an assistant in admissions and financial aid at Albion College and then at Davidson College, Davidson, NC, between 1966 and 1974. In 1974 he became the Director of Student Financial Aid at Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA, where he served until 1981, when he joined the staff of the College Board. While at Old Dominion Bill was elected president of the Virginia Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators.

With the College Board Bill served in positions of increasing responsibility in the Reston, VA, Evanston, IL and New York City offices. He retired in 2002 as Director of Marketing and User Support, Financial Aid Services, a position in which he managed marketing and product support for financial aid services used by more than 600 colleges, universities and corporate scholarship programs in awarding financial assistance to students.

In his retirement Bill was a member of the Norfolk Lions Club, of which he was president in 2006-07, and the Norfolk Sports Club.

Bill is survived by his older brother, Samuel D. Miller, III, his nephews David William Miller (Chevon) and Stephen Raymond Miller, his grandniece, Chloe Jane Miller, and a number of cousins, the closest of whom were Frances Treisbach and her brother George Treisbach.

In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made in Bill's memory to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Philip Merrill Environmental Center, 6 Herndon Avenue, Annapolis, MD 21403.
